Wellbeing at work
We care about the mental health and wellbeing of all our staff. Having open and honest conversations about mental health is important to us.
Our commitment to staff wellbeing includes:
- Training some members of staff to become mental health first aiders so they are there for colleagues who need support and advice.
- Following best practice to be accredited with the Workplace Wellbeing Charter.
- Raising awareness by recognising Mental Health Awareness Week with external speakers, opportunities to come together and talk and take part in activities.

An inclusive place to work
We want every member of staff to feel that they belong, can be themselves and that their opinion counts. Making sure UUK is inclusive and welcoming for everyone requires continuous effort.
To support these efforts, we joined Inclusive Employers, a membership organisation for employers looking to build inclusive workplaces. This gives us access to expert inclusion and diversity support from established leaders in the field.
